No idea where he has got those figures from. Like you, I see it for £159, possibly with £10 off with the code.
I applied UKCRM165 first, which took the price down to £119. Then added ukwelcome10 and the price went down to £109.01.

So it does! Ordered for my wife for £109.01. Also tried 3.15% TCB is if goes through.

Yep that was my bad - I edited the original post. Typo on my part. UKcrm165 is the code.

Be careful when buying a Chinese phone, or any foreign one for that matter, for use in the UK, as it may not work on the UK 4G network that your operator uses, This one for instance will not work on 02 or Tesco network as both use the 800Mhz frequency for their 4G operation, this phone does not list that frequency in it's compatibility specs. Best to check what frequency your operator is using before buying.

That is a fair comment but what about their 2G and 3G networks?

a year ago doogee launched the F3 pro as a flagship phone for around £100 and I took the gamble and bought via gearbest with some trepidation and after quite a wait it arrived OK and I've used it ever since and its been fine for a phone of this price. The biggest drawback was the poor battery but you soon get used to charging at every opportunity!! these Chinese phones are slowly impacting on the mainstream manufactures and looking at the specs on phones a year later I'm becoming less sceptical about them!! I'm quite tempted by the xoami redmi note 3 international edition just launched so any comments about this phone would be appreciated.


I've got the Redmi Note 3 Pro.
Superb phone, the screen is great & battery life is impressive.
It's secondary to my iPhone 5S but I use it intensively for Pokemon Go, Boom Beach, tethering & home automation.
My only experience of Doogee is the X5 Pro, & that was mostly disappointing. Although I probably expected too much from a budget phone.

battery size seems awesome! do the reviews mention real world life?
Trying to find out - was looking for a new "big battery" phone as I bought the NGM Endurance last year, but dropped the phone with charger in the other week, and since then it only likes one USB cable, and even then, sometimes refuses to charge.
Mainstream phones just don't seem to have the battery size, and while I have concerns over the (non)warranty for Chinese imports, write it off over a year and it is only £10 or so a month, but I didn't want to get stung for duty as an extra cost.
Ideally, would like a balance of reasonable performance and reliability, with a good sized battery, so if anyone has alternatives, please shout.
​how about the Oukitel 6000 pro. similar specs to this except it has full HD screen and aluminium body
they're on eBay now from UK sellers for about £125

Or the oukitel k10000?

I've had absolutely no problems with my SU6. Did have an issue with Facebook and Facebook Messenger a few weeks ago which caused the phone to freeze but this was a Facebook fault and nothing to do with the SU6 as the issue affected other budget phones as well at the time.

Have you tried resetting the phone?

If you have, and it's still under warranty, why not get it replaced? It's still a good phone and as others have said the Moto X Play has almost identical specs.

I had a problem with Facebook also.
Thank you for answering.
I reserved this yesterday for 79.99, I arrived at argos today and they tried to charge me 89.99. I spoke to CS who honoured the reservation price. voted hot

Guys/experts is it worth considering the lenovo tab3 7" version? Its £20 cheaper at the moment & Ive read the 7" version has longer battery runtime. I see the 7" is 1.3Ghz & the 8" is 1.0GHz.
Im not very tech savvy. However I want the best one for the money spent. Thanks
P.S can anyone here advise whether these have SIM card capability?
The 7inch has only half the storage (1GB+8GB) of the 8inch and a lower resolution (non-HD) screen for £30 less (at Argos) . I'm also not sure if the processor on the 7inch is actually faster as it is a different chip in the 8inch - the 8inch has a 64-bit processor and runs Android 6 (Marshmallow) whilst the 7inch only runs Android 5. The 7inch also only seems to have a single speaker whilst the 8inch is stereo.

Neither model sold by Argos has a SIM card slot - I believe there is a version that does support a SIM (the slot is blanked off in mine) available elsewhere but I don't know how to get hold of one.

IMO the 8inch is a better beast and is excellent value for money and should last longer with the extra memory and support for Android 6. However, if you really want the best "bang for your bucks" have a look at the cheap, older ones, that PC world stocks.

You could also look at the Amazon Fire 7 (7inch 8GB) with special offers (i.e. includes ads) currently being sold for £40 on their web site, but this doesn't run Android, but instead their own "Fire OS" which is a version of Android that doesn't run Google services such as YouTube.

When you say that the phone could not orientate the map so that you are always walking up the screen, can you manually rotate the map to do so yourself? Guessing it depend on the app.
Seems like a deal breaker - I use my phone very occasionally as a walking sat nav (e.g. 2KM across Florence with rucksacks, where I had only been once before) & this would do my head in. Thanks for clarifying (I thought it was only dishpointer that would not work)! :)
I was using Google maps satnav, I couldn't see a way to rotate the map so I was always head forwards so to speak, I think it was like the map thought I was always heading north (presumably no compass means the map defaults to pointing north?) and perhaps it was because I was walking in and around tall buildings that the GPS wasn't accurate enough to determine my true direction of travel. I haven't had this issue when using the satnav in the car, so I'm sure it's probably only likely to be a problem when walking in difficult GPS locations like a built up city. I don't think it's a show stopper for most people but something to consider.

does not support any 4g UK network. Pointless and COLD!
Will work on 3. I am on 3 so happy.
Nope, 3 use 800mhz.

Three only use 800mhz for VoLTE. This is only supported on a very small number of devices (16 devices from 4 manufacturers)
All are from big high street brands.

The only network you are likely to have an issue with is o2 and it's network partners. You will still have fast 3g which for most people is more than satisfactory.
It's not a case of 2 out of 3 frequencies being fine, it's not a selection of beers. If you are missing a frequency you miss out on signal where others will be fine. 800mhz is better for building penetration and long distance in rural areas. You are missing out without it.

EE are currently rolling out 800mhz to their masts at great cost for this very reason.

That's obviously not true is it.

I had 2 of these for my kids, as soon as the system updated it loaded more memory sapping rubbish and left no room for anything, an SD card is not a fix as the pre installed apps cannot be moved to it. Ended up taking them back to currys as not fit for purpose and changed for the 16gb versions

I wouldn't buy it. Very is not a reputable retailer, the Tab 4 is a the bargain basement offering from Samsung, the display is poor, the upgrade to Android 5.1.1 is still pending (while for example the comparable Z3 from Sony is long on Android 6.0), and most of all: it does not run Pokemon Go because of the Intel CPU.

Yes, it is cheap for a new tablet, but not cheap enough.

That's a really good price for 3200MHz
Thanks, if you check recent pricing then you should see RAM prices are starting to go up too.
I guess its due to the weak exchange rate.
Yeah I think this is an all time low for DDR4 prices, kinda annoyed as I bought the 2666 for the same price only a couple of months ago and yet to build my system. Just wish CPU prices would come down but the opposite is happening, the 5820K was £260 a couple of years back, now it's £360 :(
Hopefully AMD brings some competition back to the CPU space with their new parts and forces some price drops as this Intel almost-monopoly is getting tedious

[quote=iand123]I specifically bought this to replace my Microserver as as much as I love it, it was getting a bit too fiddly to maintain. I wanted something that "Just works"" with little faffing and the qnap was pure faffage.
I got the TS-453 pro (same spec as above) to replace my HP Microserver for the same reason, I can't fault it. I use it to store HD movies and music to stream to Sonos and various Kodi boxes, My HP struggled to cope at times but the QNAP does everything with ease.
Strange, my HP Microserver didn't really struggle with multiple HD streams (2), at least going direct to Kodi, not transcoding which probably would have stuffed it.
I should clarify that most of the issues I had with the QNAP was with the docker containers, so if you're not using them then you might be fine and dandy. Each to their own.
why would you need docker stations? what do these enable to do? sorry new to nas drives etc
So these NAS units tend to have like a package system for software you can install on it - things like Plex or MySQL or whatever. That's pretty cool and one of the nice things about them, but sometimes the software you want isn't available as a package for your NAS and you're pretty much out of luck. QNAP packages won't work on Synology systems and vice versa.
Docker works a bit like this, but is agnostic, so you can spin up the same docker "container" on any system that supports docker. It's not quite as simple as this, but that's the idea. Docker containers are great, they're lightweight and a good way to run software that can't conflict with other software. If you had a bare metal machine and started installing all your stuff on it, eventually you'll hit some kind of conflict, something will rely on Python 2.6.2 and something will require python 2.6.1 and the two can't exist side by side. In a container, they get their own instances of those dependencies so they don't spill all over each other, a bit like a VM but without the overhead of running an entire Operating system.
I personally do not see the point in tinkering too much with a nas, the fact is it is a storage device that does a job, with little interference from the end user. If I wanted to start messing about with all the above I would get a computer rather than a nas. I have owned a qnap now for a few years and it does the job it should do.
You have a much smaller use case than many people in this thread. The stuff we run on the NAS does far more than just store data, it helps make that data easily available in multiple places to range of devices. Plex is a great example of this, you're right - you want your NAS to store data, but what if you're on a train and want to watch a film you've legally ripped from a Blu-Ray? Your NAS sat at home just storing data doesn't help that, but your NAS running Plex means you can seamlessly stream it. Different use-cases for different folks.

[quote=iand123]I specifically bought this to replace my Microserver as as much as I love it, it was getting a bit too fiddly to maintain. I wanted something that "Just works"" with little faffing and the qnap was pure faffage.
I got the TS-453 pro (same spec as above) to replace my HP Microserver for the same reason, I can't fault it. I use it to store HD movies and music to stream to Sonos and various Kodi boxes, My HP struggled to cope at times but the QNAP does everything with ease.
Strange, my HP Microserver didn't really struggle with multiple HD streams (2), at least going direct to Kodi, not transcoding which probably would have stuffed it.
I should clarify that most of the issues I had with the QNAP was with the docker containers, so if you're not using them then you might be fine and dandy. Each to their own.

Ordered one of these with keyboard from gearbest just under 200 and picked standard delivery took 6 days no customs charges, as it was a present could not test but the reviews for this made this the one to purchase.

the keyboard has extra battery in, very good build quality overall will try testing in a week's time after the recipient has received it.
Re my lack of proper charger from Banggood (i7 Book) - they have emailed today saying "sorry we don't have a suitable charger in stock"!! and could I tell them where I could get an alternative, and how much!!

Now I was going to go on TechTablets' forum and update this - but they seem to have blocked my IP address for simply telling the truth! Nothing slanderous, spammy or troll-y. Just a frustrated customer who's made their first purchase seeking some help.

Incredibly heavy handed and a website I read quite regularly too! Astonished!

Edit: Seem to be un-blocked now. Not sure what's going on. Other friends could navigate the site when I was "blocked", not using a VPN or anything.

Looks really good in terms of specs and aesthetics however my main worry with all these gadgets sold directly from China is wether they're clean of any spyware.
​I have a Teclast Windows 10 tablet and it was clean - did a system restore just to be on the safe side, installed a firewall and monitored - no issues.

Doesn't system restore lose the play store? What firewall do you use?


What Play Store on Windows 10?

been reading up about this it requires a dc power adapter to charge, some other tablets can charge via micro usb port.
Tell me about it! I have a Chinese tablet I just bought and it takes either USB C or a prong-style AC Adapter, but it has to be 12V, positive polarity, 2.5A/2500mA. Banggood sent me the wrong charger last week and I'm STILL trying to get a decent response out of them! Was all over town yesterday trying to find a powerful enough charger that fits.
My Linx 10 (which is sold in the UK, of course) takes a prong-style adapter too, so it's not just Chinese tablets (though the Linx is a clone of the Pipo W1 and others).

Found the matching keyboard on Banggood website.http://www.banggood.com/Original-Magnetic-Docking-Rechargeable-Keyboard-For-Teclast-Tbook-10-Tablet-p-1059465.html 347.18 if anyone interested.
Thanks, was struggling to find the keyboard dock - even the TechTablets' reviewer said at the time of his review he found it hard to source. The fact it has an inbuilt battery is great - it's an idea more tablet manufacturers should adopt.
I got one of these for my Linx tablet. Works fine, including in car.https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00J1J0RTA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's a Cube i7 Book adapter I'm looking for. The manufacturer told me to contact Banggood (yep, still waiting), I bought a USB C to USB 3.1 cable but my Power Bank is 5V (I realised later), so no good (this tablet charges by USB C or 12V AC).

Have a prong adapter that fits (in my random bucket of crap - full of cables and chargers!) - the charger light goes on but it only charges at 200mA, but leaving it overnight still left the battery dead :(

Was in Maplin yesterday, even went into mobile phone shops (as it charges by the newer phone charging connector, USB C), hardware stores - had no luck at all.

I managed to break my Linx 10 the other week :( even broke through the glass protector so the digitiser is gimped :( The Linx charger is a bit too thin for the Cube's AC input.

This is the Cube i7 Book adapter from the Cube website (obviously I want a UK one) http://www.cube-tablet.com/media/wysiwyg/Blog/Cube_i7_Book_20.jpg It would help to know even if Cube adapters were interchangeable for their different tablets, but Cube didn't answer my query :(

Edit 16 Aug: Banggood say "we have to contact the supplier" (sigh). Went for this, UK plug, hoping that this Cube i7/i9 adapter (the i9 is one of their most recent releases, before mine) will fit the AC input. Sick of waiting! http://www.aliexpress.com/item//32689241033.html

Interestingly Argos are also selling the black, 4GB RAM version of the refurbished L50-C for £169.99. You can add a 4GB DDR3L SODIMM for around £18, so you can save another £22 if you're prepared to upgrade the RAM yourself. Link is here. I bought one last week for a friend who needed a basic Windows laptop. What I was sent was an L50-C-20G, which had Windows 10 installed, and the slightly faster and newer i3-5005u 2GHz CPU (other specs identical).

First I got of the 4GB models had to go back because of a faulty wireless card (very smooth process with collect+). Second I received was the 20G model with Win 10 too. Very happy that there was a fault on the first.

that's a rip off. £200+ for a dual core i3 refurb. If you search "refurbished laptops" in Google there are about eight better refurb shops with better prices than argos
These 'refurbs' can't be sold as anything else and are (for the most part) customer returns "Ooh I don't like the colour" or "the mouse pad isn't sensitive enough"
Most 'refurbs' that you are talking about the machines have been used and in some instances abused and are properly second hand, then refurbed
I know I got one from a refurber, ex business laptop cost me just over £100
These are a different ball park
You're free (obviously) to vote how you like, but what you're comparing this refurb against those from others really is chalk and cheese
To be honest, he does not know **** mate. He also, makes a bold statement, but oesnt back it up with evidence. So he is just a queen who wants to scream

Link??

There are few on CeX website.

A condition with SSD, £145
B condition with SSD, £130 (may be out of stock online)

CeX sell those with HDD at higher prices. It is most likely that their price only considered hard drive size, and ignored the hard drive is SSD or HDD.

So make sure always buy SSD version from CeX, value for money.

I have bought 3 phones from Gearbest. 2 worked fine 1 didn't... and it was troublesome to get it sorted out.. pictures, email, video clip and then after supplying them with everything I could got offered partial refund nowhere near the price I spent . I vowed to stick to banggood and never use them again. but that is Gearbest. . . the phones all made by xiaomi apart from the one that didn't work are really great phone. I was lucky as I'm on Ee so my 4g bands work well the phones are fast and compared to my Samsung s5 it's more powerful. some games lagged on s5 some had to be played at medium level but this phone played at max settings and no lag.. .. but Gearbest grrrr they peeved me right off

Dear friend,
This is Gearbest Store Rep.Alice
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience brought to you.
Could you please kindly PM me the order number of your phone which didn't work well ?(or ticket number)
Also, you can contact me here : [email protected]
Hope to hear back from you ! I will try my best to help you

So if you use ee or 3 and, like most people never use the warranty... You can spend the 200 you've saved on something else, even a replacement should you need one!
All the networks use that band to some degree.
They do but the use of B20 is limited to a few devices on Three. Even if you buy a Huawei P9 from them it will get nothing on B20 either directly of via the InTouch app and this applies to the majority of devices.


Just wanted to add for the record that this is complete horse poop. Had my doubts when reading it but put a frequency logger on my phone (3 sim only contract) today, it spends more time on band 20 then 3.
I've only ever bought one thing from Gearbest (£12 keyboard for my Linx). Currently sent a few emails to Banggood after they packed the wrong AC Adapter for a tablet I bought - Live Chat won't even speak to me and direct me to their contact forms, which takes up a day at a time! It's a not-common connector so I've had to buy from Amazon Prime to "make do".

Not that impressed with my China purchases at the moment!

Is this a good deal? Can you upgrade the HDD? I've got a mac 2008 and it's been upgraded to the hilt but only two hours battery and gets so hot it burns my legs.
You can't upgrade anything on the new MacBooks :( I have a late 2008 MacBook that is in pretty much the same boat as yours.. I removed the disk drive and put in an ssd as my system drive and put a 1tb HDD for storage and I upgraded the ram to 8gig etc.. I get about 3-4 hours without being plugged in :) for me it's not an issue as its no longer used as a 'laptop' and is almost always plugged in and is desked, I have a top line 2015 MBP for 'on the go' but i know how you feel.. If you are looking at these specs and feel you will defo NEED to upgrade them don't bother.. Pay a bit more and get the spec you want :)

Yeah, mine is used when I need it, which I guess isn't that often. It's been dropped, pulled apart, upgraded etc etc and works. Reckon I'll be using it still in 2018... Upgrading is part of the fun. I pay eventually go for a good hackintosh.


It'll definitely still be as good in 2018! There isn't really much difference in performance between the 2008 and the 2015! Obviously if I've got a lot going on in photoshop or Logic Pro then the 2015 inches ahead in performance but in real terms were in not for the battery and overall weight my 2008 MBP is still a beast :)

I believe that a lot of 'refurbished' PCs are actually cancelled/returned orders that cannot technically be sold as new even though they may never have been used.

Can you whack a cheap graphics card in this?

Yes, how cheap?
Don't really know......up to 50 quid.

Crikey, that is cheap. Might as well stick with onboard or find a cheap pre-owned card.


I have heard that gt610s are better than integrated lol


(Not GTX, GT610)

If its rootable and has CM13 ready, it could be hot?
There is a cm version for the t300, but generally cm does not work well on Intel.

If your stuck with the crappy firmware supplied I'd say its cold then.

TF103 - the worst Android Transformer device that Asus ever made... and that's saying something when you compare it with the woeful TF300. At £97 for the tablet only, it's about £40 too much...
Cold.
​Well, I bought it for the girlfriends mother and it has 4 stars out of five from Trusted Reviews:http://www.trustedreviews.com/asus-transformer-pad-tf103-review
Thats why i bought one and soon regreted it!!


​I'm not sure if some people are getting confused because there are 1gb versions of this as well and this is the 2gb version.
I haven't given it a thorough test, but I have set it up and it doesn't seem slow at all (I use the HP pro slate 12 normally), don't know if that's the upgrade to 2gb Ram and/or lollipop software over kit kat, compared to the old model.

Sorry, just a couple of questions. How would one buy this phone sealed, would it come like this from Banggood? Also, how well do people rate Banggood as a reseller?

Cheers


​ive bought a fair few things from Banggood always received everything although sometimes they took over a month to arrive.

I've only bought from them twice, a Xiaomi Charge pack, twice, and both came in like 7 days i think it was, no hassle.

I have purchased this phone from Aliexpress from the Xiaomi authorised store and it cost me £120 for the grey global version (so English user manual, package, EU charger, official global ROM) and one year replacement warranty in the UK.http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Original-Xiaomi-Redmi-3-Pro-Prime-Mobile-Phone-Snapdragon-616-Octa-core-4100mAh-Battery-Fingerprint-ID/2178148_32679430782.html
I have placed the order on Sunday, and now the price has gone up to £122 - but you get cashback through Topcashback.

I also ordered it via aliexpress few days ago because I want to have the extra bit UK warranty for 1 year. Can you give me some updates of your order status? like how long it takes to get it delivered?

I also have a concern about the validity of the "UK warranty". If you click on the warranty details it only states phone warranty in russia only!?

Cold for Banggood/Xiaomi - my Redmi note 2 died (overheating, constantly rebooting) and they have had it for over a month and it's still not repaired, they initially asked me to get it repaired myself and if the cost was reasonable they would reimburse me!

good specs but small screen. just 12.5"



Perfect portable size
Upgrade the E6230 to Wireless AC and Bluetooth 4/LE with the Intel AC7260 (half-height version). Can be found for a little over £12.
The same place that puts the price up once an item gets 'deal' status. Smells dodgy to me.

Great specs. Only thing, I have had mixed experiences with Dell.

I think this is a good price if you just want a laptop for browsing, i7 is a little outdated now but should still run chrome / other tasks very well. 768p screen but hey, still good for the price.

I have an i3 & it flies. i7? Maybe I'll upgrade to that in a few years time

I take it you're 'just browsing with Chrome' Sir? LOL these kids...
Agreed, a great little lappy. Bought the i7 last year (refubished) with an SSD and works very well, solid and performs well indeed. It does run very hot though as does my i5 one I also run for work. Very solid and able to handle a few knocks. I paid about £130 if I remember at the time last year.

I bought the i5 version a while back and with an SSD it is a great laptop. Port replicator was £6 from eBay and transforms it into a useful desktop machine. It can get a bit noisy when giving it something that keeps the processors busy.
"i7 is a little outdated now but should still run chrome / other tasks very well."

Hilarious, well done OP, most obvious statement of the century done to perfection.

I think you can also get TopCashBack on in store purchases - saw something but can't remember the detail
Wouldn't such a method be purely via a physical TopCashBack Card of some sort?, as per similar to that of what Quico is having already? (or whatever ..... ) :-)

Actually looks like you register your own card - and activate offers - not sure how that would work (logically)

Got my Note 3. What a piece of hardware, lovely screen, great battery life, super slick, very good sound for a phone, and it appears to run Pokemon Go fine if anyone cares X) (including AR mode) It looks and feels fairly classy too.

The software side is more troublesome. It had a retailer modified OS with ads on the lock-screen and in chrome, and it took a few hours (and lots of watching videos) to figure out how to get a clean version of global MIUI onto the phone. Now I've done that it's super nice though, but it's still on 5.1. I'd really like to get Cynagenmod 13 and 6.1 on there, but that's a difficult process involving waiting for approval to unlock the bootloader.

If you're not tech-savvy you'd probably be stuck with the ads and hate the phone, but if you can get a clean OS on there it's a lot of phone for £112.

Edit: Oh one more thing, the Pocket Minecraft demo crashes when you launch survival mode, dunno about the full game.

Will this phone have touchscreen problems, such as for example the vodafone smart 6 where when I was texting quickly the touchscreen didn't like keep up?
Could you explain why you have inserted the word like between didn't and keep?
If you're gonna be a pedant at least do it properly. You could have used quotation marks or italics, but without either your sentence looks even more nonsensical than the one you are criticising.
The grammar fuhrer will be disappointed in you.

Calm down, don't get your thesaurus in a knot.

Ok I took the plunge, 2GB/16GB in gold, now the waiting. Was between this and the Honor 5C, but I keep reading the 5C has a worse screen (low brightness and contrast). Hope 5.5" isn't too big.
Cheers for the replies btw.

I purchased the 5c and can only say that I am shocked at how good it is. I put a launcher on it as I didn't like the apps being on display constantly.

Regarding brightness, I am currently sat in a sunlit garden with the screen on 80% brightness and it is clear as a bell.

It has a far superior signal to my S3 and the camera is also superior and all for the princely sum of £139.99.

Well chuffed.
Ordered at £114.12 thanks very much OP nice find. My brother ordered one of these and recommended it to me. My Nexus 6 is getting slugglish even after master reset the camera for example keeps crashing. Will be keen to see how this compares
